Door Curse

I think I might be cursed. No matter what I do, my doors always get broken. I put up barriers, traps, it doesn’t matter. Even if I had doors made of steel, they would get broken. Did I step under a ladder while spilling salt and smashing several mirrors, all without even noticing? Because if …

Galactic Solar Energy

Today was just one of those days, you know? Work isn’t always easy, especially when you’re harnessing the power of a thousand suns, funnelling that same power into electricity and sending it across the galaxy. I had to meet with the Ruler of Planet today. His name was Donny Trumpet or something. Honestly, I can’t …

The Premier’s Predicament

Well, I didn’t expect that to backfire so spectacularly. Turns out I’m the only one that came into work today, all ready for our next tabletop role-playing session of Grottos and Goblins. Who knew that my entire staff would be too weak-willed to come into work with the air conditioner broken? Even though the state …

My First Tattoo

I’ve heard the saying “everyone remembers their first” my entire life. And it’s true, with each of my new firsts symbolising an important stage of transition in my life.  I remember the first time I rode a bike, for example. My parents took me to the local oval and promised they would hold onto me. …

This Metal Steed

Bah, vehicles! BAH, I say! Time was that you could get anywhere in the kingdom by simply leaping astride your gigantic swine, performing a simple weightless enchantment and soaring through the sky, conducting the winds like an orchestra to push you to your destination. I learned today that people of this realm have been driving …

The Big Race

I’m ready for the race of my life. It’ll be fast, but I’m faster. It’ll be tough, but I’m tougher. It’ll be insane, but I lost my mind several years ago. For two hours I’ll be driving from Brisbane to Brigalow, with a checkpoint in Toowoomba. Auto electrical shops will be happy, given how beat …

Safe Glass Shower

I have always been terrified of horror movies. I’m the type of person that will watch a scary movie with friends and then have nightmares for a week. I don’t know why I’m so affected by them. And more importantly, I don’t know why I keep watching them. I can’t even count of the number …

Teddy Bear Tinting

Oh no. This is bad. This is really bad. My boss is going to be so mad. I’ve exposed company secrets, and to a reporter of all people! To be fair, she was a really good actress. I thought she couldn’t see me. I thought we already had it installed in our Melbourne office. Glass …

A Magical Wedding

https://images.assetsdelivery.com/compings_v2/tonobalaguer/tonobalaguer1210/tonobalaguer121000197.jpg Last night I was reading the final book in the “Boy With the Lightning Scar” series, and I got up to the big wedding scene between Will Beasley and Flour. It’s such a great chapter, filled with toasts and celebrations. It’s truly wonderful. But I can’t help but ask: where did they get their …
